I think Gandalf said it best in the LOTR movie when he said,
“Run! You fools!”
Beginning around 1 minute and 45 seconds….ahhhhhh….sheer goodness, damn it….
“I have your answer.” he says through the satellites;
The answer – to a question…that I asked him tonight;
A tickle to his Wizard brain –
A thought, one driving me insane;
He is the winner playing on this field;
He breaks the records, he owns the game;
of my bullheaded difficulty, against his grain.
“Look inside of You.” And his words ring true – to my bones;
“This is me, is this you?” heartache gone…Let’s go home;
A tickle to my inner-ear –
A touch, a truth, I long to hear;
His are the hands that carry gently,
my evidently beating heart, he knows my name;
he holds the stones and feathers of the home from which I came.
“There’s nothing broken about you.” He’s all business in his tone;
Over and over and over…until the message starts hitting home.
***NO SPOILERS INCLUDED, EXCEPT A KINDA TEENY ONE, BUT NOT REALLY***
Lord of the Rings – Battle of the Five Armies – in IMAX
The “Good Bunkie” and I are both total LOTR freaks, I am finally openly admitting this publicly on my blog…YES…I am secretly infatuated with Gandalf the Grey, Legolas, and Radagast the Brown…okay okay, I adore Samwise Gamgee, too…shoot me.
Anyway, On Christmas night, the two of ventured out to the nearby IMAX theater to see the Battle of the Five Armies, finally…we have both been waiting like little children in a long line for a candy straw since we heard of its upcoming release. Yes, this is what happens when you almost get killed, but bounce back – quit heroin – lose your identity and child – move into a bachelor pad and take it one day at a time…you become a Lord of the Rings geek.
SEMI SPOILER TO FOLLOW:
It’s not really a spoiler, just a glimpse of the fucking sheer awesomeness that this saga stands for, really:
At the end, there is part when Thorin Oakenshield and his best warriors (Fili, Kili, and Nori) have to get up to the top of a mountain quickly to try and take the Defiler where he has posted to watch his waged war. As an Aries, I just loved the fact that the guys rode Billy Goats as horses in this scene and went straight the fuck up the side of the hill in a flash, the effects were insane in IMAX…that’s it, that’s all I’m spoiling but when you watch it – – – make sure not to miss that genius split second of sheer FUCK YEA!
Okay, the jig is up and now everyone knows: I am A Die Hard Lord of the Rings Geek. Yes I am. If you aren’t, you should be. 🙂
